  Below are two buckles that were used on the "Chief" Jumpsuit aka "Indian Feather" the first "Chief" buckle was used in 1975. The copper Indian Head was first seen on the "Egyptian" Jumpsuit Buckle in 1974. The first "Chief" Buckle seemed to find new life on the "Egyptian" belt from November 1976.

The "Egyptian", "Chief" and "Arabian Second Version" got recalled in the fall of 1976 due to Elvis having lost weight.
